A Great Little Canyon.
Pine Creek is a true Zion Classic. It has a big handful of fun rappels, some downclimbs, swims; and then a tedious hour of boulder-hopping to get back to the car. It is largely underground, and offers respite from the hot sun in summer. It can be full of very cold water or dry enough to not wet your shoes. People mock it as being just too easy. But in my experience, it always delivers. At times, sunbeams laser down into the darkness, lighting up the walls, the water and the people in a splendid display.
This is many people's first Zion canyon, and it is a fine choice. It is popular, and mid-day on summer weekends queues can form up for the rappels. Being in the heart of Zion, permits are required, the group size is limited to 12 persons, and there is a daily quota, though quite generous. Go during the off-hours, off-days or off-season to have the place to yourself.
